Three tape/pamphlet independent learning packages have been constructed to serve the same learning objectives as three conventional lectures on the physiology of the nerve axon. The learning efficacy of each package was compared with that of its companion lecture with the co-operation of fifty first-year medical students in a controlled experiment. The packages were at least as effective as the lectures in generating both short- and long-term attainment of their intrinsic learning objectives. The findings are discussed in relation to learning efficacy, student study time, student acceptability, package preparation time and costing.
